Gamer Professionals is currently on the lookout for promising and talented writers. Come write for us!
The bottom line, however, is that while this site will improve and thrive with the material you submit, personal improvement and achievement can only be accomplished via one method: personal initiative. While this position does not pay, you may have the opportunity to join this team and represent the website at Electronics Entertainment Expo, Gamescom, or other such conventions in the future. You will be eligible to play games early in the form of review codes. But these rewards are for those who show me that they have initiative and can go beyond the bare minimum. Show me your dedication, and I will repay that dedication to you by giving you a wonderful experience that can be capped off with many other benefits.
Every writer has his or her right to an opinion on this site, and they will not be censored if they choose to write a piece that incites inflammatory discussion. However, I expect all of my writers to take responsibility for their material, and defend themselves on their writing. And remember, this writing is entirely yours. You can use it however you see fit, but note that Gamer Professionals can use your material at any time with or without your discretion for promotional purposes.
We’re looking to make some new waves in the industry by bringing forth talent from other fields that extend beyond journalism, because these fields have voices too! That doesn’t mean that journalists aren’t allowed! So long as you meet basic qualifications, you’ll be fine!
Gamer Professionals, LLC is a news, editorial, and review site. What that means is that we cover the games industry’s latest information and bolster that with original content and in-depth analyses on titles from a more academic perspective.
We need the following positions filled:
These are the bread and butter of what we do here, as there is always news to post. Our main requirement here is whether you can put together sentences in an understandable matter. You can get bonus points for your enthusiasm and ability to take your news writing a step further and analyze just what it is that you wrote about. You will need to know where to comb for news. One aspect that you will need is to make an account with us on Slack, and collaborate with our team frequently. No communication for extended periods of time is subject to dismissal – this goes for all positions.
For our Editorial Writers, you have to be willing to think outside the box. Think outside the box, and be able to bring forth a discussion that ignites a spark in people’s minds. Our Editorial Writers are tasked with weekly production of original written work of your own design. We don’t give you topics or “homework” to write about, so being creative and detail-oriented in your work is a must. This position requires a significant work load compared to a News Writer, and all of your work will get approved by Senior writers before going public and will be verified by the Chief Editor or Managing Editor in the editing process. You need to be able to take on criticism from your editors as well.
Video Content Creators and YouTube
Here is a nice field to jump into that can go quite literally anywhere. We started a YouTube at some point that never really took off, and we’re looking to revamp it up. Video work and editing skills recommended. You can do quite a number of things with this – theorize, video reviews, opinions, whatever suits your fancy so long as it aligns with our values and what we seek to achieve in providing high-quality discussion. Show us what you can do and if you do a good job, we’ll hand over the keys to the channel!
How to Apply
Send an application and some writing samples through this site – we’ll get back to you within 72 hours. If we fail to do so, follow @GamerProsNews and ping us – we’ll get on it!
As a side note – if your writing isn’t top notch, don’t fret because there are quite a number of factors our hiring staff take into consideration during the process. Be confident in yourself and good luck!
